The stories are strong with good plot, folklores, imagination, dark and sometime eerie. His collaborative visual works are also good. He’s one of my favorite writers.
I follow him on his twitter.
On the 1st day of 2011, I found this writing in his blog and I like it very much:
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
I find these words are inspiring for the new 2011. Feel energized just by reading it.
Thank you, Neil Gaiman.
Since Sunday 24.06.2007, the electricity in Setiabudi, Jakarta is down. Due to explotion in one of PLN (our public electrical company). The whole area at Setibudi is in dark, the houses, flats, buildings. It said that it will be fixed, err i mean, running as usual on this Thursday, but they said that it will extend until the end of the week. Ck… ck… menyebalkan sekali. So at the moment, my office building electricty is running on genset. It needs 100 liters of solar fuel per hour on minimum usage. During work day it needs 200-300 liters on maximum usage. With the extended mati lampu, the building would need 11 millions rupiah to buy solar fuel stock to last until Sunday. Geez!
(need to get home soon. will add this post tomorrow. sorry hehe)
